Everyday Theology, edited by Kevin Vanhoozer, Charles Anderson, and Michael Sleasman, A New Heaven and a New Earth by J. Richard Middleton, and Linguistic Analysis of the Greek New Testament by Stanley Porter, appeared on the “What We’re Reading This Summer” list from the staff of The Gospel Coalition.

A hymn inspired by J. Todd Billings’ Union with Christ, I Stand Forgiven!
